Interim pastors play a vital role in the ministry of congregations — providing congregational care and missional guidance in times of transition.

The interim pastors serving Minneapolis Area Synod congregations are gifted and enthusiastic about their work — and committed to continuously improving their skills. They proudly meet every month for gatherings that provide edification, prayer, and support.

Eight Foundations of Interim Ministry

  • To maintain the viability of the congregation
  • To bring closure to the previous pastor’s ministry
  • To reinforce the ministry of the laity
  • To clarify the mission of the congregation
  • To address specific and special needs of the congregation
  • To provide for a congregation self-study and development of a vision and mission plan
  • To strengthen denominational ties
  • To prepare the congregation for their next leader
